  I Do Now on the Advice of my Doctor
  Posted by: clydehedlund on Jan-30-14 2:52 PM (EST)

Because too many elderly paddlers like myself collapse, for some reason or other, while paddling out on the ocean, and on a surfski, it's instant immersion. So I listen to my doctor. Sure, there's no guarantee that I'll survive, but at least I'll float?

Prior to the doctor's advice, I didn't wear them, for they were a hindrance and a detriment to my style of paddling.

Wearing a PFD is a personal decision, and I respect your decision to either wear them or not.
